What's on our minds in July...
Local as a key to success
- Create a thriving neighborhood around you. Use the NYC BID Association website to find your business improvement district, or go to the city to start your own.
- “Buying local” isn’t just limited to food. Consider sourcing local vendors for your business. Made in NYC has a great database to find locally made products of all types. (And you can list your business on there as well!)
- Guide the next generation of entrepreneurs. Business Mentor NY is a free network that allows new entrepreneurs and volunteer business mentors to connect.
